The Decline of British Fiction

The Decline of British Fiction

Patrica Waugh and Jennifer Hodgson discuss their motivations for writing their article “On the Exaggerated Reports of a Decline in British Fiction,” published in The White Review. In this conversation, they explain how we look at twentieth century literature through a series of historical phases, such as modernism and postmodernism. They argue that this blinds us to the stylistic and formal continuities that can be found running through innovative British fiction from the nineteenth century to the present literary moment.
